Regatta Participation:

Our C420 team takes part in the Florida East Coast Youth Series during both the Fall and Winter/Spring seasons and also attends 2-3 club regattas each year where sailors race with the spinnakers and trapeze.  All C420 team members are expected to compete in these regattas as they provide an ideal platform for young sailors to have fun and enjoy the sport while further developing their sailing and racing skills.
